Our friend Dianne K Webb is directing a reading of Aditi Kapil’s Agnes Under the Big Top on Saturday, May 13th with Next Iteration Theater Co.’s Intercultural Play Reading series. dianne has previously directed with Shunya (Bhopal and Art) and acted with us (1-888-DIAL-INDIA). Shunya also produced Aditi Kapil’s youth play The Adventures of Hanuman in 2012, so we have all sorts of connections here! The reading series also includes two other plays: Lauren Yee’s IN A WORD and Madeleine George’s PRECIOUS LITTLE on the Thursday and Friday before. We’re looking forward to it, dianne!
Shunya Artistic Director Sara Kumar will be reprising her role in an encore performance of The Jeweler’s Shop, which we previously posted about here. The show will be Saturday, January 14, at 7:30 p.m. in Jones Theatre at University of St. Thomas. Tickets are being sold online at http://jp2forum.org/
Shunya’s own Mandar Sane (multiple music composition and performance credits, actor in Bricks and Lyrics) will be playing tabla for the song Within You Without You during Backspace’s December 29 show at Fitzgerald’s. The band is going to cover tunes from the Beatles and the Kinks. The show starts at 7pm, tickets are $15, and the proceeds go to charity.
I was incomplete in my earlier post, Shunya members Karthik Chander and Deeba Ashraf will also be on stage along with Sriram and Jesal. See you at the show!
Once again Country Playhouse is presenting their tremendously fun MADCAP 24. Shunya has participated in the last several years, and once again two Shunya actors will be on stage: Sriram Vengalathur and Jesal Kapasi. This is always a fantastic show — one night only! — and it is amazing what the playwrights can come up with in the 10-12 hours they have. If you do make it out, drop me a line at Sanjay@ShunyaTheatre.org.
